hualien castro and first lady michelle obama. no secret that the obama campaign is trying to win over hispanics and women. now, they do have a big lead with both, but will need to hold or build on it for november. and before either speaker takes the stage, the president will be campaigning in norfolk, virginia today. a state that just happens to be 54% women. let me write in roll call politics reporter and political editor. welcome to both of you. so michelle obama. i think her job is maybe uniquely complicated. she's very well liked. viewed favorably by almost seven in ten americans. but he's well liked, too. you can love someone and, i don't know, still not want to live with them? can you think barack obama is a great guy but maybe he hasn't shown you that he can solve the country's problems? what is michelle obama's job tonight? >> it's to simply humanize her husband and build on the high like ability score for him. the first lady has appalachin a rating of nine points higher than her husband. so her job hands down is to just make him seem like a family man. >> doesn't he already h
. tonight night two of the democratic convention puts the famous clinton/obama drama to work for the democratic campaign. and the auto bailout. elizabeth warren, the nuns on the bus, planned parenthood, mitt romney's bain capital legacy, and not in a good way. an undocumented immigrant speaking for the first time in convention history. if last night was for the first lady and tomorrow is for the president, tonight is all about hardball politics. msnbc's primetime coverage of the democratic national convention night two begins right now. >>> thank you for joining us. i'm rachel maddow here at msnbc headquarters in new york. i'm with ed shultz and reverend al sharpton and chris hayes as well as steve schmidt. our fence lawrence o'donnell will be joining us shortly as well. and leading our coverage from charlotte, north carolina, from the site of the democratic convention this year is our friend and colleague chris matthews and a lot of his friends who he is there with. chris, you're a very popular man in charlotte tonight. i've got to you if tonight is essentially afterglow fro
. will they dig deeper? a lot of this campaign has been successful for president obama because he's able to keep it simple, stupid and stay on the surface and use buzz words like billionaires and millionaires and class warfare. i am onering if he will say the unemployment rate goes . are percent. >> steve: talking about the unemployment, he diverted. what the president was doing yesterday. he was attacking mr. mitt romney and mr. ryan on their plan to fix medicare. i thought this was interesting . if the same share of americans are in the office. the actul unemployment rate would be len and half percent. underemployment figure is the number of people who have begin up working or have taken a part-time job currently at 14.7 percent. and the participation rate of people in the work force is in the lowest level in 30iers. >> brian: that goes to your point gretchen. president obama has a great shot of winning, as bill clinton said. you don't need president obama or mitt romney speak. i have to change this and i think the other guy can do it >> steve: you have a neighbor that is impacted with that. >
obama, which was this date four years ago, the focus was the war. in fact, both wars. >> do you, senator mccain, much has been said about the lessons of vietnam. what do you see as the lessons of iraq? >> i think the lessons of iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy. thanks to this great general david pa tray yous, they are succeeding and winning in iraq. >> whether we should have gone into the war in the first place. six years ago i stood up and opposed this war. we hadn't finished the job in afghanistan. we hadn't caught bin laden. we hadn't put al qaeda to rest. and as a consequence, i thought that it was going to be a distraction. now, senator mccain and president bush had a very different judgment. >> so that was this date, 40 days out from the election in '08 and 40 days out from the election in '04. in '04 the campaign was consumed with the debate over at least one of our wars. 40 days out from the election in '08, in the midst of the financial meltdown the campaign was consumed with both of the wars. now it's 2012 and we're 40 days out from the election this y
. >>> thanks very much. happening now, president obama on this day he has some time to raise money in person, but only time for a phone call with israel's leader. more criticism coming in. we're also looking at the obama administration's evolving attempts to explain who's responsible for the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. is the confusion becoming a political liability? and mitt romney says he has a little secret. you're going to hear him predict he'll win a state most experts think is safely in president obama's column. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're down to just 39 days until the presidential election. in about 20 minutes the president begins a series of fundraisers right here in washington. those are the only public events on his calendar today. yet this is the same day the president didn't have time for a face-to-face meeting with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who's in new york. instead they spoke by phone. here's cnn's white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: wolf, the white house always stresses that the presid
barack obama during the 2008 election and he continues in that role today. welcome to all of you. thank you for being here. i will turn things over to ron and joe. >> can everybody hear me out there? year ago. bill, do you want to join us? that way he does now have to talk back and forth between us. joel, i appreciate coming. >> good to be here. >> this is a follow up on a conversation we had last week in tampa with ron kaufman when we talk a little bit about race and politics. it made a little bit of news. this is something you and i have talked about over the years and we have agreed to disagree. do you think the president's race is the factor at all in this election? >> we talked a lot about it in 2008. president obama, when he was running in 2008 said, " i won't win this election because i am african-american and i won't lose this race because i am african-american parco i think that was true then and i think it is true today. there is a lot the on in this country coming in this world, they are concerned about. this election is about big things in their lives. he has been present fo
cain is a long-time supporter of freedom for libya. he supported president obama's actions to remove gadhafi. he's been critical of how the administration has handled the benghazi aftermath. we spoke earlier today. take a look. wh do you make of the response by the administration in the early days of ambassador rice and now what they're saying now, they're now saying it was a terrorist attack. the president did use the word terror early on in the rose garden, but we heard from ambassador rice, who is saying link this to the video. what do you see as going on? >> i see a fundamental misunderstanding in the larger picture and then on the smaller picture. in the smaller picture they were either incredibly naive or willfully deceiving the american people. i don't know which. but to think an attack of this nature with heavy weapons, mortars, and a very sophisticated direct fire and indirect fire, that somehow that could be the result of a spontaneous demonstration is just impossible for me to understand. >> let me just throw in a third option, though, which supporters of the administration would say,
. president obama and prime minister netanyahu attended the united nations general assembly in new york, but at different times. the white house insisted it was a scheduling issue, not a snub. no meetings, no handshakes. but today a follow-up phone call that a senior administration official told cnn lasted more than 20 minutes. in a statement released by the white house, the conversation included "a range of security issues," the president reaffirmed his commitment to israel security. and the two leaders were in full agreement on preventing iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. prime minister netanyahu has been pressuring the u.s. to lay down a so-called red line on iran that would prompt military action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white
been trying to have a campaign that was structured around the idea that barack obama was a nice guy, a good fellow, a good dad and an all-around swell american but that mitt romney thought that he could probably do a better job being president and manager of the economy than he could because they were very worried about not only fending voters had voted for obama in 2008. they didn't want to sound like romney was being a jerk, but they were worried, too, pretty obviously, about what the establishment press was going to say. if romney came out and attacked the first black president on his record and went after him, what would people say? well, that strategy, the latest polling tells us, has not exactly been a bell ringer in ohio. so what you hear from romney is he gets to the must-win. it is an absolutely must-win state for him is this tough new tone, and not only is he talking about the economy as you heard him do there, but guess what's back? the debt clock. they've got the debt clock back, and they're talking a lot about how much president obama's policies cost, they're talking ab
that is almostatz important. president obama went in 2009 and had the speech in cairo reaching out saying we changing the relationship with muslim nations. this does not bode well for that in pointing out the difference compare to him and bush. >> brian: biggest thing not calling egypt a ally. who is the hillary clinton. she only wanted 24 years whompt could be next. senator kerry or the ambassador we saw spinning things and possibly the disillusion with the truth. ambassador susan rice. >> steve: it looks like the smart money said she would wind up with a national security job in the second term of a barack obama administration. >> gretchen: we'll continue to talk about this. are the obama's chicken's coming home to roost? many foretold the deadly attack. i a plane comes in for a landing and minus wheels. that's why we are showing it to you. >> steve: old double nickel. ♪ come on baby, and rescue. ♪ come on, baby. and rescue me. ♪ cause i need you by my side. ♪ can't you see that i am lonely .... i love this time of year. it's all about change. the kids are going back to school, it'

and the obama campaign to have vice president joe biden mark the day in a way that was not political. it was just about remembering the people who were lost that day and commemorating the sacrifices people have made in this country because of 9/11. while both sides in the presidential campaign suspended their negative ads for the day out of respect for the anniversary, there's no ban on campaigning today. there's no rule about what you can and cannot do. mitt romney gave a speech today before the national guard association in reno, nevada, and at times it sounded like his normal stump speech. he did go out of his way to attack president obama for defense cuts that are part of the sequester deal. which incidentally, are cuts that paul ryan voted for in congress. that's the kind of thing he's been stay save saying on the stump. after a week and a half of bipartisan blistering criticism of mr. romney for leaving discussion of the war in afghanistan out of his speech accepting the normal mination for president in tampa, paul ryan didn't mention the war if his speech either. but after fac
